CPHG team participates in the United Way Day of Caring

A team of volunteers from the Center for Public Health Genomics took part in this year’s Lawrence Richardson United Way Day of Caring held on September 19, 2012. CPHG volunteers spent the morning painting a fence that borders the community demonstration garden at Bracketts Farm, a preserved 18th century farm deeded to the Green Springs National Historic District and the National Park Service. Operated by the Elizabeth Nolting Charitable Foundation, Bracketts Farm continues as a working farm with the purpose of exhibiting outstanding historic rural architecture and sustainable farming methods. Food grown in the Bracketts Farm garden is donated to the needy through local food banks.
